9. Trevor “Stixxay” Hayes (Golden Guardians)

The once longest-tenured member of CLG, Stixxay moved on from the rebuilding org and landed with another rebuild in Golden Guardians. But Stixxay has clearly been in decline over the past several seasons, so it both makes sense that CLG would move on and makes no sense that Golden Guardians would pick him up for a young team.

Certainly, Stixxay can provide veteran leadership to this developing GGS roster, but that’s going to have to make up for his play on the Rift. Stixxay had the worst aKDA of all AD Carries last season (2.02) and he had the most deaths of all bot laners as well.

On top of that, Stixxay was one of the least efficient damage dealers in the LCS last year. Although his raw 530 DPM is not that bad (though below average) his -29.2 EDD reveals that a lot of that damage is because of his champion pool rather than his play.

And speaking of champion pool, Stixxay is actually right around average when it comes to champion pool size and depth. He had elite performances on Aphelios last year, and can comfortably play the staples like Ezreal, MF, and Varus.

However, on none of those champions, not even his Aphelios, was Stixxay an exceptional laner. His matchup-adjusted gold plus experience differential at 15 minutes was -988.3; he was almost a thousand gold and experience down compared to where he should have been given his lane matchup. That poor laning cost him in terms of his overall income, which is why he had only 405 gold per minute in 2020.
